ARLINGTON (CBSDFW.COM) – The Rangers have made a qualifying offer to outfielder Josh Hamilton, but did not do the same for five other eligible free agents including catcher Mike Napoli, and pitchers Mike Adams, Scott Feldman, Mark Lowe and Koji Uehara.

Hamilton now has until Friday, November 9th to accept or decline the team’s offer.

The fact the Rangers made the offer to Hamilton doesn’t necessarily mean the team will be a bidder for the free-agent outfielder’s services. It really just means they don’t expect him to “settle” for $13.3 million and were afraid Napoli would.

If Josh accepts the Rangers offer, he is considered a signed player for 2013. If he declines, the Rangers will gain an additional selection after the first round in the 2013 MLB Draft if he signs with another team.

Napoli, on the other hand, is no sure bet to see that kind of money, despite his status as the top-ranked catcher on the market. He signed a one-year, $9.4-million deal before last season, avoiding arbitration.
